~22 Weeks~

Loving that my weeks are just flying by! :) Only 18 more weeks or 122 more days to go! I'm just amazed at how active this little boy has gotten within this last week. I know he is growing a ton cause I know I sure am growing a ton! LOL I seriously am waiting for the question, "Whoa, are you carrying twins?" It's really strange, cause some days I seem bigger then other days. All I know is I can still wear my regular pants & shorts! That's a good sign, I think?? My tops on the other hand... Not so lucky in that department! :)

This week has been a good week, except for the excruciating tooth ache I had earlier on in the week, but now.. It's good! My kiddos went back to school and it makes me sad that I can't enjoy the quiet time! At least for a little bit, seeing as I work all day now! But I am grateful that I was able to stay home with them for the last 12 years. Thanks Nick! :)

This week I've felt so much better not having those pounding headaches/migraines. Thank goodness those are subsiding. Also, not too many cravings since I had a tooth ache. I kinda drank most of my meals this week. LOL

I have noticed I've been getting Braxton Hicks a lot lately, nothing too painful and I always seem to get them right after I hit the half way point! Not fun.

Weight Gain: 12 lbs

Cravings: Lots of Cravings just couldn't enjoy any of them! I mostly drank Chicken Broth, Tomato Soup or Smoothies.

Symptoms: Pelvic Pressure, Back Pain, Braxton Hicks and more Heartburn.

What I miss: Seeing my feet! I can't enjoy my lovely pedicure! :) Certain Sleeping positions.

22 Weeks!

Wow, he looks really low this week!

Their baby's the size of a papaya!
During month five, the average fetus measures about 10.5 to 11.8 inches and weighs about 12.7 to 20.8 ounces.

Their baby at 22 weeks!
  • Now that he's got more developed eyes and lips, he's looking even more like a newborn.
  • He's sleeping in cycles -- about 12 to 14 hours per day.


  1. Just beautiful!! I enjoy your posts every week and love the pics!

    1. Aww! Thanks Jen! I sometimes find it hard to post but enjoy every time I've done it. Pics aren't my favorite so that is where I struggle! LOL
